HC Deb 29 July 1931 vol 255 cc2274-5
37. Mr. LATHAM

asked the Minister of Transport whether he will take steps to secure the enlargement and improvement of the York-Scarborough road?


The responsibility for the initiation and execution of schemes for the widening and improvement of the York-Scarborough road rests with the North Riding and East Riding County Councils, who are the highway authorities concerned. I am prepared to consider applications by the county councils for grants from the Road Fund towards the cost of such schemes.


Cannot the Minister of Transport call a conference between the East Riding and the North Riding county council authorities?


If either or both of the county councils are going to do the work, I shall be glad to bring them together. In the meantime, the hon. Member can perform a useful service by making representations to his friends on the county council.
